Smart Habit Saturday



This week, I'm going to continue working on the habits I mentioned last week. I can't honestly say that I did very well this past week, but better than if I didn't have something to aim for, I suppose. Posting the chart up on my bathroom mirror gives me a daily reminder of what my goals are.

I know that most people probably think it's better to work on just one or two things at a time, but trust me when I say that I seriously am so out of whack right now that I need to improve every area of my life pronto! Having a list of 20 different things that I'm working on is helping me to try to find balance in my life - everything from my relationship with God to having pretty feet is covered!

I have to admit that I've been neglecting myself for quite some time now. I think that after my kids were born, I went into some kind of depression (though I'm not sure that's the right word) wherein I just didn't really care about myself at all - all my energy went into my kids. I put myself on the back burner. Now, many pounds and a lot of self-pity later, I have dug myself into a deep, deep pit I'm trying to climb out of.

As a reminder, here's the 20 habits I'm working on:

  1. Devotions each morning
  2. Vitamin each morning
  3. Bed by 11:00
  4. Bedtime Routine (wash face, moisturize, brush teeth, floss)
  5. No Sugar
  6. At least 5 Servings of Produce
  7. Shoes on in the House
  8. Mini-Pedi each night (file calluses and slather with Vaseline)
  9. No Binging
  10. No Food After 8 pm
  11. 5 Min. Stretching
  12. Walk at least 20 Min
  13. Breakfast
  14. Calcium Tablet
  15. Floss
  16. Strength Train
  17. No Soda
  18. Don’t Salt Food
  19. Drink 64 Oz. Water
  20. 1 Hour of Quiet (No tv, no radio, no yelling kids - just time for my mind to be quiet)

Do you have a set time for your quiet time? I have mine first thing in the morning - not an hour, just about 30-40 minutes. That is when I do my bible reading/bible study, prayer time, etc.

If you don't feel like you have time for 20 minutes of walking, just do 10. You might find another 10 later in the day.

Those are some great habits. I'm working on some of the same and should work on some of the others.

Have a SMART week.

Working on that many is hard but you can do it! Good luck with your Smart Habit Boot Camp!
